Everyone from famed Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough to rising local star Alan Pennington were in attendance as Graysons Solicitors celebrated their first year as sponsors of the city’s Art In The Gardens event.
The law firm, which was first formed in 1925, made their debut at this weekend’s Botanical Gardens show in Sheffield.
Graysons first made its mark in the local arts world two years ago when it commissioned Sheffield born artist Alan Pennington to do a number of designs for its new offices.
The then Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Anne Murphy who herself has a keen interest in the arts, officially unveiled the new premises on behalf of Graysons.
The firm recently commissioned Alan Pennington to work on scenes from the Botanical Gardens – the images were used on everything from mugs to bags and given away as mementos of Art In The Gardens to visitors attending the show.
Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons, said: “Graysons has enjoyed a long history in Sheffield and we’re always looking for ways to put something back into the community.
“Art In The Gardens is a fantastic event that attracts great crowds and helps nurture the next generation of artists. We are pleased and honoured to have had the opportunity to be premier sponsors and to have been actively involved in the event.”
Graysons also staged an art competition for kids which attracted scores of entries.
Graysons Solicitors specialises in wills & lifetime planning, probate & estate administration, property, family, personal injury, occupational illness and medical negligence.
Art in the Gardens took place at the city’s Botanical Gardens this Saturday and Sunday, September 7th and 8th.
Graysons are situated at Courtwood House, Silver Street Head, Sheffield S1 2DD.
